The Hoard for The Eco Jewelry Workshop

Thank you to everyone who donated to Simply Jess + myself for our upcoming workshop!!!! We will be using all of this lovely jewelry in making fantastic new designs. Thus saving the jewels from the landfill and creating Eco-friendly jewelry collections Jess can sell to raise funds to travel abroad this summer on her People To People Ambassador Program! We will be posting photos when we are finished so stay tuned!

Peace. -H.

Calling All Jewelry Designer/Makers Creating Jewelry from Found Objects/Recycled Matierals

I'm currently looking for jewelry designer/makers who make their work from found objects/recycled materials and have professional photos of their work that I might be able to
consider including in a book I am writing on found objects/recycled materials in jewelry. 

If you or someone you know might be interested in this opportunity please send
me a message at with your interest and I will let you know how to send me images.
